Hood release not working


Do you mean its detached from the cable? If so, see if you can reach the attachment point for the cable and pull in direction of the cable to release. If this is helpful a thumbs up or clicking helpful would be greatly appreciated. Good LUCK.hood-release-not-working-mi3qs3kfzvqijsqzkmg2vt51-3-0.jpg

Hood Latch Cable Broke


Someone with a lot of patience and persistence can use a strong piece of wire such as a straightened coat hanger to release a hood latch from underneath the car. It is a good idea to have someone press down on the hood to release spring tension. Yanking on the inside release won't accomplish much. I have done this task. It wasn't fun

Hood release cable level inside of car works but wont release hood . how i get it to release to get hood to pop . so i can open hood


Have someone press down on the hood while you pull the cable.Most likely the latch is just sticking and needs a good shot of penetrating oil(WD40).May even try having them bump the hood while hold the latch.Good luck!

Pulling the hood latch handle does not release the hood on a 98 Volvo v70, it is not out of adjustment because the cable broke from the latch and pulling the cable itself with vice grips does nothing,...


Outer sheath of release cable has perished. You need to disconnect the cable from the inside , hold the end of cable with pliers and push forward the outer sheath with v shaped tool eg clawhammer and there will be movement of the cable on the latch side releasing it. Hope this helps

2001 GMC Jimmy question. My hood release cable just snapped when tried opening it. Is there any other way to pop open the hood??


You need to bend a hook in a coat hanger and then try to snag the cable end from the front of the truck,just below the hood.If you know someone who's truck you can look at[any chev or gmc truck] it will be easier for you to figure out.You may possibly have enough cable left inside the truck to get a pair of vise grips on,that would be easier.

Cant open bonnet on a vw golf as the standard mechanism has broken need an alternative method to open it


inside the car cut the covering back on the release cable to expose the wire release cable, with a pair of locking pliers (Vise Grips) pull that inner wire while someone pushes down over the hood latch area, that is what we try 1st in the shop, most times that does it.

Hood release cable is broken


Is there any part of the cable inside the cabin that you can pull with a pair of pliers? I suggest that you try that. You may need to disassemble it from the pull handle to make that work.
